Businesses benefit hugely from employing ex-Service personnel. Responsible organisations are helping to integrate veterans into the civilian community and ex-Forces men and women bring a wide variety of transferable skills to the workplace.
UK law insists that employers must treat disabled people fairly and reasonable adjustments to the workplace are easy to make. We work alongside businesses big and small to ensure that our veterans thrive in their new jobs.
Here are some businesses that we have recently worked with:
Roz, Military Promise Project Leader, National Express
National Express has a really successful and rewarding relationship with The Poppy Factory. We work together to provide tailored workshops, paid work placements and jobs to their skilled veterans. They are wholeheartedly committed to supporting the people they represent and are always on hand to guide and to advise on what works best.”
Brendan, Chief Engineer, TfL
“We employ exForces personnel for their skills and commitment. The Poppy Factory is a really good organisation to link with, to contact and gain knowledge from.”
Andrew, Operations Director, Fujitsu
“It has been a very professional relationship right from the start. It is great work that The Poppy Factory undertake and I hope the relationship with Fujitsu continues.”
